    GET RID!!!!
    Its a virus, its a trojan... i was downloading off mirc a week ago.. ive only just got my pc online! I had 58 virus on my pc... it unleashes hell on your system! If you dont reply to this thread i can only assume you have been hit by it! go to Trend Micro for a free onlin virus scan... it got rid of mine!

    :)

    if you spend some time on IRC, you'll find that whenever you join or part a room, sometimes you'll get meseges saying "come look at this", or "you're script messeged me.." -- dont believe ANYTHING you get messeged by someone, they are all viri or trojans. thats how they spread, alot of times the person that sent you the messege doesn't even know they are doing it.

    Yeah, mate, the benefits ARE great. I've had files sent to me automatically on occasion. Just open up yer IRC folder, find what's been sent (unrequested) and delete the bugger.
